Frequently Asked Questions

About Us

What is LiveSpace?

LiveSpace is a global livestreaming platform where creators get an 85% revenue split—no more 50/50 split like on other platforms. Our mission is to help the next generation of gamers, musicians, podcasters and other creators to get discovered, build a community and earn a living.

Why did you create LiveSpace?

As creators ourselves, we know where you decide to build your community is a big decision. We also realized that no existing platform truly solved the needs of up-and-coming creators. So we decided to build a new platform with creators’ needs in mind every step of the way, from discovery to monetization. LiveSpace is the place we always wished existed, and that we know creators will love.

Where is LiveSpace based?

We're headquartered in Los Angeles, California and welcome streamers from around the world.

Where can I get LiveSpace merch?

Visit our official store and pick up some cool clothes and gear.

Are you hiring?

Yes! Keep an eye out for open positions on our Jobs page.

Getting Started

Are there any eligibility requirements to start streaming?

Anyone over the age of 13 with a LiveSpace account can stream.

Is there a mobile app?

Not yet, but you can still use the website—and stream!—through your mobile device.

Does LiveSpace cost anything to use?

LiveSpace is free for streamers to use.

Why join LiveSpace if I already stream elsewhere?

Streamers on LiveSpace get an 85% revenue split (unlike 50% on Twitch) so it only makes sense! Besides paying you more, we want to help you build a real community, with built-in tools like subscribers-only content, advanced analytics, and better content discovery. LiveSpace is a platform to help you grow your audience and build your career as a creator, not just get more views.

What streaming software is LiveSpace compatible with?

You can use any software you like – all you need is your LiveSpace Stream URL and Stream Key. We recommend OBS Studio. If you don't want to use software, you can also get started streaming right from your browser with our 1-click webcam integration.

What stream URL do I enter in OBS?

The official LiveSpace stream URL is: rtmp://app.live.space/live

You can enter this anywhere it asks for a custom RTMP server.

What browsers are compatible?

You can use any browser you like. We recommend Google Chrome for the best platform performance.

Do I need special equipment to stream on LiveSpace?

All you need to begin streaming is a computer, tablet or smartphone with a built-in webcam. You can also connect external microphones and cameras if you like. No special software or equipment required!

Livestreaming

How do I start a stream?

Just click the video icon in the header, choose a video input and press start. Begin with just your webcam or connect your own external camera and microphone. If you want more control, switch your input to “Stream Key” to send video from OBS software.

What URL will my stream be hosted at?

Your username is part of your custom URL, like live.space/username.

How are you able to offer an 85% revenue split?

It’s no secret that hosting HD livestreams is expensive – it can cost the platform over $10 per stream. Platforms have 3 options: charge streamers for their usage, run a ton of advertising, or reduce the cost of the livestream itself. LiveSpace chose the third option, and we are proud to use breakthrough peer-to-peer video streaming technology to achieve high reliability while keeping the cost low. This allows our users to enjoy free livestreaming and earn a revolutionary 85% revenue split.

What's the recommended bitrate for OBS?

We recommend you set your video bitrate at 4,000 and audio at 256.

Are there in-stream alerts for viewer activity?

Not yet, but integrations with existing stream alert tools are in our roadmap! In the meantime, you can use OBS software to achieve this.

Can I record streams to watch later?

We're currently a pure livestreaming platform and will not record streams at launch. Adding this feature is in our roadmap! Until then, you can self-record your streams and post them on YouTube, which you can easily share in your profile on LiveSpace.

Can I add text or image overlays to streams?

You can add text or image overlays to your streams when you use OBS software. We're working on ways to add more features like this to our browser-based creator studio!

Can I invite guests to co-host a stream with me?

Soon! In the meantime, you can use OBS software to achieve this.

Can I share my screen during a livestream?

Not from the platform itself, but you’re welcome to use OBS software to achieve this.

Is there a minimum payout threshold?

No – you'll just have to have enough of a balance to cover the payout processing fee.
